To afford the reader and participant in these on-line lectures with an appreciation for cardiopulmonary interaction in the intensive care unit.
The free, animated lectures on this website are supplements to the chapters in the textbook.
A screenshot from the lecture for chapter 4 [right] demonstrates the transposition of the Campbell Diagram with the Guyton Diagram. By combining these two helpful, graphical analyses, a full understanding of heart-lung physiology can be achieved!
As above, there will be a chapter for each lecture. The animated lectures on this site will serve as a supplement for the published volume. Encouragement & guidance from Drs. Ruoss [Stanford] & Gropper [UCSF] helped bring this project to fruition.
Jon-Emile S. Kenny M.D.
Originally from Canada, Dr. Kenny found adapting to American luxuries such as mobile telephones, the world-wide-web and horseless carriages - initially -rather difficult. He earned a B.Sc. at the University of British Columbia and his M.D. at the University of Toronto. He completed his residency and chief residency in general internal medicine at NYU-Langone Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in pulmonary & critical care medicine at Stanford University Medical Center.
Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Beth Israel Campus in New York City. He is the co-founder and chief medical officer of KE2 Technologies, a Northern Ontario-based medical device start-up with provisional patents on a portable, non-invasive hemodynamic monitor. In June 2017, he completed a Master's Degree in Medical Education at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
He is honoured to learn that the Cleveland Clinic Pulmonary & Critical Care fellowship has integrated parts of this website into their curriculum.
The first 4 chapters will cover basic physiology and pathophysiology with an emphasis on the Campbell and Guyton Diagrams.
The remaining 4 chapters will focus on clinically-relevant topics in the intensive care unit; the discussions will be largely drawn from the physiology covered in the first half of the textbook.
Heart-lung.org will provide a comprehensive, on-line tutorial in cardiovascular and respiratory physiology for the interested medical student, resident and fellow.
